[ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. >>> welcome back. everybody, president obama was sworn in for a second term earlier this afternoon. he got some big hugs from his wife and his two daughters. there are some people who are not so happy that he won the election. thak a look at the poll numbers, a new cnn/"time" magazine/orc poll, shows the president's approval rating is 55%, 43% disapprove of the way he's doing his job. br
, tucker? i mean, 30% of the country believes that barack obama-- 36 believes he's hiding something about his background and early life and it's not all republicans. >> right. >> megyn: and the amount of independents also believe that. >> the same poll showed 36% of democrat think that bush was part of the 9/11 conspiracy theory. it's a complicated world and people use the theories to explain it when they don't understand it. the real mystery is not where obama is from, who cares, it's the motives in doing the things he does, so he says obamacare would reduce health care cost, it doesn't. raising taxes on the rich would balance the budget, it didn't. banning rifles with certain cosmetic features will prevent shootings, that's not true. and the real question is his motives and stated reasons don't make sense. people have a right to have answer and i don't know what it is. >> megyn: is it because he was born in kenya, a muslim, or the ability for like the bill clinton did, to break through and say i was born in hawaii. >> he is a different kind of president than we've ever seen. he's an afr
has lowered its expectations. only 35% in the nbcs in/"wall street journal" poll says the country is headed in the right direction. as president obama's news portrayed is released, his approval stands at 52%. his likability at 61%, but only 29% say he is working effectively with congress. and today there's more conflict. responding to the president's declaration that he won't negotiate over the debt ceiling, republicans backed down. they raised the borrows limit but just for three months. if democrats don't great to a budget of deep spending cuts by april, they cut off lawmakers' paychecks i want why should the american public pay elected officials this they don't do their fundamental right to pass a budget. >> reporter: since richard nixon resigned, second terms have had negative starts. >> it's been a long time since we've seen a positive second term. >> the bush 43 second term was plagued by iraq and hurricane katrina. the clinton second term by scandal and impeachment. now, amid the preparations for celebration, the new obama term starts with a budget confrontation. -- saying
of congress are supposed to be free. >>> now that president obama vailed plan a at reducing gun violence those for and against are making themselves heard loud and clear. the topic fires up all over the country. the battle lines on gun laws are in congress. >> reporter: after outlining proposals to diminish gun violence president obama signed executive actions aimed at strengthening gun laws. >> we'll make its easier to keep guns out of the hands of criminals by strengthening background checks. >> reporter: that requires congressional action as does the call for the re-instatement on the ban of military-style assault weapons and trafficking laws. >> there is a need for an assault weapons ban. >> reporter: while some mayors immediately supported the measure some lawmakers are opposed. >> the shooting in connecticut lead to this. nothing is proposed could have prevented connecticut. >> reporter: nra is proposing an epic battle. >> this is less about protecting our children than it was about using our children to promote an antigun agenda. >> reporter: some lawmen are vowing to ignore the restric

. romney attacked obama is deferred action policy that allows some young undocumented people to remain in the country temporarily, saying a more permanent solution was needed. romney was accused during the appearance of avoiding specific details about a possible permanent solution and asked to respond with a yes or no on whether he would deport undocumented youth. >> were not going to round up people around the country and deport them. i said during my primary campaign, time and again, were not won a round of 12 million people, that includes kids and parents, and have everyone deported. we need to provide a long-term solution. i've described the fact i would be in support of a program that said that people who served in our military to be permanent residents of the united states. unlike the president, when i am president, i will do what i promised. i will put in place an immigration reform plan that solves this issue. >> that was republican presidential mitt romney speaking during an interview on univision last week. he got much louder applause than president obama did, juan gonzalez.
begin this morning with gun violence in america. president obama planning to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after the newtown tragedy urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people in this country. the president also outlined 23 executive orders that mostly reinforced existing laws, speaking directly to congress he urged action despite a tough political road ahead. >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all out assault on on liberty. not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. the only way we'll be able to change
and the cast of glee also performed, but it was michelle obama's hair do is what folks were talking about. >> this is what inauguration is all about. it's about celebrating who we are as americans and all the things that make this country so great and when i think about who we are, when i think about what makes america great, i think about all of you, our men and women in uniform, our military spouses, and our amazing military kids. >> today was also something called gun appreciation day. thousands of gun advocates gathering across the country to rally against the president's proposals to reduce gun violence. >> too many in this country have been silent too long. we cannot -- we cannot -- we cannot be silent any longer. those 20 beautiful children who lost their lives in newtown are no longer able to speak for themselves. we have to speak for them. >> trying to outlaw certain black guns because they're black guns and hold large rounds of ammunition isn't going to do anything to stop those monsters >> i don't think it's really something they should attack. it's our amendment. it's our righ
of president obama's gun control plan. critics argue that he is violating the constitution with his executive orders. holder is dismissing that attack and asked all mayors to back that order for the safety of the country. >> public service is never easy. there comes times when those of us who are elected or appointed positions must put the interest of those who we serve, we are privileged to serve above that which might be political ex- pediatric cent or professionally safe. this is one of those times. >> reporter: jooft president laid out tough restrictions for gun ownership. some members of congress expressed a concern for a ban on assault weapons and number of rounds in ammunition clips >>> we learned that one american is dead in the assault on a terror group in algeria. the militants are threatening more attacks as they try to deal for jailed terrorists. fox correspond ends amy come log reports. >> reporter: worn and weary but thankful to be alive. some of the hostages freed from the gas facility in algeria taken over by terrorists embracing after being brought to safety. others taken to
the national debt, doubled it. we are the only country in the world that has a ceiling. it is a scam. i remember alan greenspan saying it might not be a good idea to pay off the national debt. that was around 2000. obama, where he should do, if you could have a $1 trillion corn, make 16 of them, pay off the national debt, and go on about your business. host: now to jesse, republican caller in texas. caller: i just wanted to touch on a few things. i am kind of wondering about the debt ceiling. where they came up with this situation. it just does not make any sense, why they want to fool with other people's money whenever folks in the white house don't have to worry about their money and the big money people don't have to worry about their money. they are going to get paid. but the little man -- i am disabled -- the little man has to worry whether they will get paid or not. and when did they come up with this electoral votes? it does not make sense to me. the republicans had it. then the electoral votes came up. host: one of the callers mentioned no other countries do this. here is an opi
of power this time from obama to obama, but what it shows is that it's the president taking the oath of office to lead an entire nation, to heal some of the divisions of the election, to bring the country together and lead into a second term. from the ceremonial aspect, the pomp and circumstance is much, much different than four years ago when you had hope, change, 1.8 million people on the mall. the first african-american president ever elected. >> the crowd very different. >> the biggest crowd ever in washington ever on the mall including mlk's speech i have a dream. this is a moment we're watching, but that was a transitional moment in american history. >> tell us about as someone who watches these inaugurations, takes a look at history overall, what will you be watching for tomorrow in both the ceremony and the address that the president is going to give? >> well, jenna, i'll be looking for what his maybe four policy priorities that hee before he becomes a lame duck. we're two years out from 2014, only four years from 2016. really, he's got a hundred days, really maybe a year to
exactly in half. the reality is that the half of the country that is open devoting for obama, in fact, voted for him in november still is a strongly pro gun control constituency and the large extent democrats have been paralyze odd this issue by the fear of losing voters they've already lost. mostly blue collar white men, more rural voters. i think the key for the president is going to be to build a coalition that includes not only democrats, but those blue state republicans. that's the big difference between the politics of gun control and congress from the 199 0z until today. in the 1990s those blue state republicans felt pressure to support it. >> you could go through congress, or the president could go to issue an executive order. talk to me first about an executive order. obviously it would have to be around laws that already exist. what are his options potentially on the table? >> pretty limited. i think on executive order, they are going to have elements of executive action in the package that are coming out with this week, but they will acknowledge from the white house themsel
and the family. obama's second inaugural address coming up soon would be a good time for him to rely on the country that the government is dependent on the people, not the other way around. we also need more clarity and discussion from all of the leaders about the importance of family despite the widespread acceptance that children do better with two-parent married households despite what we know about the instability in financial hardships caused by single parents trying to raise children on their own and despite statistics about the worst educational attainment, greater criminal justice and a great welfare usage among the single parent families, despite all of that our leaders, our universities, our media and religious institutions and the leaders of the groups where the problem of single parenthood is the most severe both of the african-american and hispanic community refused to take this issue on the aggressively or deal with in any meaningful way. this problem is particularly glaring in the reporting of most of our media, which to it sometimes credit devotes great effort in chro
, president obama plans to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after newtown urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military-style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people. >> so let's look at all of those items up there. richard wolffe, every one of them has overwhelming support of the american people. universal background checks. 85% of americans support that. restoring a ban on milita military-style assault weapons. that's a 60/40 proposition now. limiting magazines to ten rounds. almost 7 in 10 americans support that. additional tools for law enforcement. you know that's got to be an 80/20, 90/10 issue. the same with improving mental health services. i bring these numbers up only to say, once again, that my r
the hostages. coordinating with the leaders of other countries involved and the united states among them. and david cameron has been talking to president obama about probably sharing their confusion about the situation on the ground, and that very remote part of algeria. leon pan etta has come out, saying he and the rest of the defense department is working around the clock to bring the situation to a happy ending. >> and matthew, another question, and i apologize if you already addressed it, but i'm trying to read the latest details coming out. do we know the number of americans? any clarity on that? >> no, we don't is the short answer to that. we know that there are 41 people according to militants held hostage, and a good number from britain, japan, and the united states as well. exact figures are very hard to come by at the moment. >> yeah, that's actually one of the more disturbing details, right? we don't have the actual information and the united states doesn't know. matthew chance live in london. one more thing here. i am uncertain whether or not there was clarity on that a small
care in this country. peter doocy, thank you very much. let's continue now, gun control is just one item on what is shaping up to be, what some say a very ambitious agenda for president obama's second term. the president of course, sworn in a week from today in a private ceremony, the public inauguration a week from tomorrow, from cabinet positions to the debt ceiling, and immigration reform. jennifer griffin takes a look at the president's agenda ahead. >> harris, first there will be the confirmation battle, some will be bruising, none more so than the president's pick for defense secretary, chuck hagel. those hearings could start as early as this week we're told by senate sources and the white house mounted a vigorous defense and hagel says his record on israel, iran and gays in the military has been distorted and the senate armed services committee, kelly ayotte says what worries her most is the reaction from iran. >> what i want to make sure is that iran is actually not hopeful, but they're fearful, as r ult of our nominee from the secretary of perspective. >> former chairman of
towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is in fact a safe bet. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. martha: a lot of talk about the president's demeanor at that news conference yesterday. we'll get into that a little bit more coming up but for now does this really come down to an issue of raising the spending limit or defaulting on our credibility as the president has talked about. let's bring in stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. so, stuart, you feel the way he is framing this is incorrect? >> ye
cling to black helicopters and guns. that's a rural part of this country. i don't like it. i disagree with it, but the bottom line is the south, which by the way if you take a look at virginia and north carolina h obama won virginia twice, won north carolina the first time, almost won it this time. south carolina, what did mitt romney win it with? 53%. georgia, 52%. the south is trending purple. it's going purple. this is not a southern problem. it's a rural american problem. that's what's going on. >> we're to our other southerner now. karen, there may be people around the country who are upset over what the president has done to stop gun violence, but resistance seems especially strong in the south. for example, in mississippi a state where white voters gave the president just 10% of their support, governor phil bryant will draft legislation to say firearms manufactured in mississippi would not be subject to federal regulations. is this something he can actually do? >> well, i have a slightly different take on this as well. i suppose this governor thinks he can try to do that, but i
in the country. we had the flight of manufacturing jobs until recently. there's a bit of a turn around there. it seems to me president obama's biggest priority should not be the deficit. it should be restoring shared economic growth. yes, we need to do something about the long term deficit. i think the big argument is going to be between people who want to argue that the whole deal is deficit reduction. let's spend all our time putting on our green eye shades and talking these numbers. ezra will be excellent in describing what the numbers need. in fact, we could get a deficit on a decent course for a few years with about 1.5 trillion deficit reduction then move on to other issues. you are going to talk about it later, obviously guns and immigration. can we restore shared growth? >> yeah. >> people at the bottom go up as well as people at the top. that was the core promise for the obama campaign. >> this is not a small thing. there is no guarantee. if we bring down the deficit, there's no guarantee the next president will be a democrat or to the left of center. we may want a deficit reduction
, a lot of folks from suburban places around the country, it's become a bit unruly on economics. and i think obama has papered over that for the last four years. but i think that's going to change here in the next few years. the first issue where i think we'll see a conversation on this is the question of entitlements. there are some folks in the democratic party who are happy to have a conversation on issues like the eligibility age for medicare. other democrats like sherrod brown, the senator from ohio, i talked to, they say hell, no, we are not going to have a conversation about that. that is core to our dna, and we're not going to move on that. >> j-mart, last time republicans had an internal debate about a lot of these issues, a lot of folks divided the party. you mention smd moderaed some m coming over to the democratic party. do you see a contentious primaries in the future for the 2014 midterms? >> well, look. i don't think you're going to see the sort of club-for-growth-style conservative on moderate attacks that you see in the gop. i think you're going to see some of that. ke
against gun ownership. -- i'm not in favor of president obama's action against gun ownership. i support what rand paul said. people should be able to defend ourselves and defend our country against tyranny. i believe the founding fathers made that a key theme when they put that theythere. -- when they put that amendment there. they believe taking away rifles will reduce crime. if we look at countries like england and australia where they have totally banned weapons, the crime rate increased. host: where did you hear that? let me read this from the new york times this morning. what do you think? caller: i think that is just comparing gun for gun. what about stabbings or beatings or robberies or burglaries? england has the highest crime rates in europe. there are warnings for americans not to give up their gun rights, from over there. there's an individual who had a self-defense case in england to defend themself against two burglars. he shot and killed one of the individuals and he was convicted of murder for defending his own home on his own land. the individual who burglarized his home
got guns. -- them away from us taking over the whole country either. host: thomas in texas. what you think about the proposal? cost proposa's caller: good morning. i have a 1911 colt, winchester 3030, and the savage 22. i'm not an obama fan by any means. it doesn't have anything to do with the gun policy. i don't like kelly presents his politics -- i don't like how he presents his politics. what he proposes has to go through congress. he wrote executive orders. i am ok with enforcing laws that already exist. that is one reason why we have these problems. if people get denied on a background check, they are supposed to get in trouble for that. it could potentially prevent that person from being able to obtain a weapon. as far as funding, i think that is a great idea. that will play in favor of the second amendment. 19,000 suicides. 11,000 from homicides. less than 400 of those 11,000 have anything to do with rifles. i do not know why they want to take away assault rifles. i think there is a lack of information about firearms. people need to shoot more to be trained. i know a lot of pe
was not able to do. caller: i would ask your guest to address mr. obama's promise which drew in the young voters that he was going to be great unifier. i would contend he has deliberately set out to polarize the country and that 51% of americans voted for him but that the other 49% of americans that voted for him feel like he is sticking his tongue out at us and giving us the finger. i feel we are more polarized than we were and i see that as a promise greatly broken. guest: in fact, there is a promise to the fact that we do have the promise broken. we represented by his promise to bring both parties together to pass an agenda. as you say, there has not been success at that. there is a very robust debate about who is to blame but in terms of actions -- i have not seen him stick out his tongue or flipping the bird at anyone but i can say event this is definitely a very polarized place. that is a promise broken. host: here is a tweet - guest: i think more than ever. this is the kind of journalism we should have been practicing years ago. there is this battle of talking points and you hear t
